This video is a touch long, but if you’re a history buff like me, I think you’ll dig it. And with opening day of trout season looming in many states, I think it’s appropriate considering a lot of us will be chucking our trusty Mepps into the bridge hole very soon. We’ve been casting them for years, and these lures are a household name, but do you know how they got their start in the states? Your grandfather might have played a part in the Mepps’ rise to glory. This is a pretty interesting story.
